Favolys Perfumes

Favolys, established in 1925 at 1 rue Pierre-Joigneaux, Asnieres (Seine) France, by Rene Desseignes who also established Parfumerie Francis in 1924 and Rendes in 1924, all of these companies were very short-lived and their bottles are rare.

Rendes was established by René Desseignes, name derived from 'Ren' from first name, and 'des' from surname.

Favolys was acquired by Nissery and was renamed Favolys Nissery in 1928.

The perfumes of Favolys:
  • 1925 Glyciane
  • 1920s Dolene
  • 1927 Bouquet
  • 1927 Chypre  
  • 1927 Ambre 
  • 1927 Jasmin 

The Neo Classical bust of a woman makes up the bottle for Dolene. Made up of frosted glass, and accented painted details. The dome of the head is made up of painted metal which is removable and reveals an inner glass stopper. A small label reading Dolene is on the lower front of the bust. The back of the bust is molded with "I. Leonard". The presentation case is made up of wood covered with green faux leather and the interior is lined with cream colored velour. "Favolys Paris" is printed along the front of the box. Manufacturer of the bottle is unknown, but could be Verreries Brosse or Depinoix.

The perfumes of Rendes:
  • 1925 Ting-shang
  • 1925 Ambre

The unusual bottle for Ting-Shang is made up of clear glass, and is molded and enameled as an Asian mask. Stands 2.75" tall.

This is not your average perfume blog. In each post, I present perfumes or companies as encyclopedic entries with as much facts and photos as I can add for easy reading and researching without all the extraneous fluff or puffery.

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Also, if you have any information not seen here, please comment and share with all of us.
